Have you spotted detergent stains on your clothes after washing them? This isn’t something to be alarmed about. In fact, it’s quite common, especially if you have used too much detergent to wash your clothes or have hard water supply in your area. So, always make sure you use the right amount of detergent based on the amount of clothes being washed. We have a few tips to help you get rid of detergent stains from your clothes.
Ingredients to Keep Handy:
a) Bucket with warm water
Step 1: Soak Your Stained Clothes
Fill a bucket with water depending on the number of stained clothes to be washed. Always make sure the garments are soaked in the water completely.

Add 1 cup of vinegar to the bucket of water and let the clothes soak in it for 15 minutes.
Step 3: Rub the Stained Area
